At the Atlanta c.c. on January 12, it appeared to be thousands! There was a line through the building and spilled outside and this wasn't a single-file line either. It appeared to be in the thousands but I do not know exactly. Oh well, my sister and I will continue to pray that we get picked!

at the last casting call. I thought that seemed a little high for a 1 day thing.


That's just mathmatically impossible. Say 3000 people equal to at least 2000 inventions. Each invention gets 2 minute presentation time, plus walk in, prepare(setup), walk out, voting.. one invention will take 5 minutes time out of a judging panel. 2000 inventions need 10,000 minutes (or 166hrs) And there are only 4 panel at San Jose. So each panel will spend 44 hrs...??!!

I roughly counted how many inventors were in line per several sidewalk blocks and calculated by length of the line.
